Almond Butter Chews

I had one of those aha moment early this AM. I was in the process of making some almond butter chews (aka Bird Food Balls), when I realized that I was having major issues with the balls falling apart. It’s the honey! It may seem sticky, but it doesn’t really do the job holding the balls together.

Brown Rice Syrup really does do the trick. It keeps the balls nice and compact. I also like BRS because it doesn’t have such a powering flavor like honey does.
